Something you are very unlikely going to see from me again. Not at all my ussual Photographic interest but I thought I should post it anyway. I spent the day at a childrens home in Cape Town. It's small and independant and does not get the suppport from companies trying to boost their public relations by showing up for a day and throwing cold cash and having their photo taken doing it. But a few people do care and are willing to spend some time with the kids.

Must say I keep finding the 'crop' at the bottom awkward, but the rest is quite irresistable

A photo with a million words, great imagery - what is the homes name out of interest?

At first I thought this was a lensbaby shot but then I noticed the chains on the swing, a bit more work is needed there in PS, but idea is good.

Thanks Everyone. The homes' names is the Christine Reville home for abandoned children. The glow on the chains was purposly left there, it's easy enough to remove, I chose not to.
